Attempted murder. Surprised the police weren't called. Sir Clive had probably paid them off or had a get out of jail free card from the Queen.
So late the time he had to think about it would see it classed as premeditated?

Random Kiwis will be hit with "uts nut tuddly wunks" as often as I hear '2Bsure2Bsure' or '33/3'.

It'll equalize, ...I hope. :)

Absolutely. You could see it in his eyes. And the ball was long gone before he even lined him up.

A fine gesture, but surely you have someone local to pass on to?

Pre Game: Breaking news!


The world record for the largest haka has been broken in Rotorua.

The world record attempt was held at the Village Green in Rotorua just after midday.

With the official record sitting at 4100, the International Rugby Club hoped more than 6200 people - the number set by an unverified group in Masterton - would go along.

Tristan Tuckey, co-founder of the International Rugby Club, said he was feeling "nervous excitement" ahead of the attempt.

He said the idea was thought up in response to seeing a Frenchman "somewhere in Europe" leading a haka online.

"We said we've got to do something about this, the Lions tour is the perfect time to try beat the record."

In order to calculate the amount of people present, each of the participants was scanned in, Mr Tuckey said.

"Each person is to grab a ticket, which will be scanned. There will also be people doing the count in as people enter through a controlled point."

Mr Tuckey said sufficient evidence had to be submitted to Guinness World Records.

"The collection of the evidence has to be methodical and we will have a team tomorrow who will be filming, taking photos and counting."

The haka was led by Wetini Mitai-Ngatai and Eraia Keil, with help from students from Rotorua Boys' High School and Rotorua Girls' High School.

The words to the famous Ngati Toa Rangatira haka, Ka Mate, were shown on the large screen.

The Bay of Plenty Steamers rugby team were there from 10.30am to 11am for a public meet and greet.

"As well there will be several ex-Maori All Blacks taking part in the haka which will be cool," Mr Tuckey said.

The International Rugby Club has been co-ordinating with the Rotorua Lakes Council.

Martin Croft, the council's major events co-ordinator, said the giant haka was one of the most interesting events he had worked on.

"Local schools have embraced it and have been practising to be ready for the day."

The event had caught the imagination of the public, Mr Croft said.

"Rotorua Boys' High School and Rotorua Girls' High School have done a lot to promote the event. It highlights that the event is for everyone to be part of."

The event was free to take part in, but a gold coin was asked for, with all money raised going towards the Starship Foundation who are the official charity partner of the Lions Series.

Can't wait for this game. If the Maori can get a reasonable amount of ball to their backline things could get very interesting.

Gawd, can you fake a seizure or something?
The hospital waiting room is sure to have the game on the tv.

It's 3.40 here in NZ and kick off is at 7.35. So just under 4 hours.

Eat fast.

Get "food poisoning".

Take your leave.

EDIT: Actually, if your Mrs is cooking this is a bad idea! Go with TG's seizure option instead. :thumbup:

So this isn't the first time she's scheduled a dinner at the same time as the rugby then. ;)

Looking forward to see how the Lions cope with the Maori backline. It should be an entertaining game if they get some ball to work with.

From a Lion's perspective, it will be interesting if Sexton can rehabilitate himself.

Conor Murray has a severe case of blockhead. Looks like Jamie Roberts had sex with a plank.
